Small Catamaran/Boat Tour Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Hi Cc'ers! Looking for recommendations for a catamaran/boat tour for Aruba (or Curacao) - need help! Willing to pay $100-$200/pp and looking for an all-inclusive trip away from the crowds for half-day or full-day. Open to any suggestions, thanks!

For a catamaran, I recommend Black Pearl.  There are also two great sailboats,  Tranquilo and Monforte.

The Black Pearl is currently in drydock. They are currently using the Blue Melody. Same set up. We took the snorkel/sunset cruise. There are only 12 pax so it’s totally awesome. Very attentive crew. Book thru the website it’s $89.00 pp. There is also a morning sailing. 

 

You pick it it up right by Moomba Beach Bar on Palm Beach. Easy to enjoy beach before or after. 

 

Also search on YouTube. They post videos from each day’s sailings. I was there Feb 14

Took the Sunset Sail and Snorkel on the Blue Melody with another couple off the Celebrity Silhouette. Absolutely wonderful trip! The catamaran is very comfortable and only takes a small group so the whole experience is very personal. There is no loud music but there and great drinks and the two cheese sandwiches (one grilled, one not) were amazing. We did two snorkel stops and saw a ton of sea life - huge parrot fish, starfish, and many French angel fish. After the snorkel and food, we did a slow sail back to shore while watching a gorgeous sunset. It's about a 10-15 min taxi ride from the cruise terminal. Recommended to us by friends and well worth it. We'd go on this trip again!
